We have come across the work of street artist Pejac many times, we recently followed up with him about the work he created during his asian tour. Featured here are the pieces he did in Tokyo, although he created more work in Seoul and Hong Kong. We loved it and we hope you do too!
I have just came back from my first trip through Asia. It’s been a really tough, exciting and enriching experience. For this tour I wanted to make interventions that tackle the current political and social situation of each city while addressing topics in an atemporal and poetic manner. In order to better assimilate such cultures it was essential to meet and shear experiences with locals, as at the end it is really about the effect that Tokyo, Seoul and Hong Kong made in me and not the other way around.”
“I originally conceived this as an ‘indoor’ painting some time ago. I couldn’t help to but to make this sort of tribute as a manner of thank you to the Japanese culture for the inspiration that drove me to create it in the first place.”
“This is a work that make use of the classic anime esthetics to camouflage a critic to a reality much less kind: the genocide of an specie (Sharks) for which Japanese consumers are not the only but the main responsible for. A sea beast that emerges in the city revealing a human bite on its fin.”
“Using an icon of Japanese culture that I have always felt interest in, as the Bonsai, I have wanted to make a surrealistic work that plays with scale of different elements.”
“Making use of the Joseph Beuys affirmation I’ve made this tribute to all working women of the world.”
